LIVE COVERAGE: Baltimore Orioles vs. Boston Red Sox: Ubaldo Jimenez vs. Joe Kelly


10:26 PM: Hunter only threw two pitches before Bogaerts lofted one into shallow right to drive in Napoli with the winning run.

Red Sox walk off in the ninth.

2. 11. Final. 3. 14

10:24 PM: Matusz allowed a leadoff walk to Napoli, who moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Nava. With Bogaerts coming to the plate, Showalter brought Tommy Hunter in to pitch.

10:18 PM: Koji Uehara came on to pitch for Boston in the ninth, and he got Davis, Machado and Joseph 1-2-3 on ten pitches.

10:12 PM: Brian Matusz came on to pitch the bottom of the eighth for Baltimore. He walked Pedroia to lead things off, then got Ortiz to fly out to right. He threw a wild pitch which moved Pedroia to second, and prompted an intentional walk to Ramirez. That plan worked, as Sandoval grounded into a double play to keep the game tied into the ninth inning.

9:30 PM: After O’Day struck out Napoli, Daniel Nava pinch hit for Victorino, but O’Day got him to fly out to Snider in right field to keep the game tied into the seventh inning.

9:25 PM: With Hanley Ramirez and Sandoval on base, and Napoli coming to the plate, Buck Showalter brought Darren O’Day into pitch with one out in the sixth.

9:18 PM: Mujica gets Machado swinging to strand two runners aboard. Through five and a half, Orioles and Red Sox tied at two.

Final line for Kelly: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

9:13 PM: Kelly was finally removed from the game after 118 pitches over 5.2 innings. He was removed after walking Davis to put runners on first and second with two outs. Edward Mujica on to pitch to Machado.

Not a great outing from Kelly, but he battled hard to keep the Orioles to two runs, despite not having his best stuff.

8:55 PM: After a single from Xander Bogaerts, Ryan Hanigan absolutely crushed a pitch from Gausman over the Green Monster, and almost over everything. Game tied at two in the bottom of the fifth.

8:39 PM: Joseph led off the fifth inning with a home run down the right field line. Shane Victorino was shaken up on the play, when he hit the wall hard trying to make the catch.

Red Sox manager John Farrell challenged that there was fan interference, but a very short review proved that was not the case. The home run stands. 2-0 Orioles.

8:36 PM: Kevin Gausman came on in relief of Jimenez and promptly forced Mike Napoli to hit a grounder to shortstop for a force play at second base to end the fourth inning.

8:28 PM: After 3.2 hitless innings, Jimenez hit Sandoval up near the shoulder, and was promptly ejected by the home plate umpire.

To be completely fair, Jimenez’s immediate reaction showed no remorse for the pitch, which probably hurt him, but the ejection was completely unwarranted.

Earlier in the game, Sandoval slid hard into second base trying to break up a double play. That shouldn’t have been enough reason for Jimenez to hit Sandoval intentionally, but it’s worth noting since there is seemingly no other reason for Jimenez to have hit Sandoval.

8:19 PM: Snider and Jones each singled to start the fourth inning, putting runners on the corners with nobody out for Davis. Davis grounded into a double play, but Snider came in to make it 1-0 Orioles.

8:10 PM: After walking Betts on four pitches, Jimenez gets through the third by inducing a double play from Pedroia.

8:01 PM: After the top of the third, Kelly has thrown 60 pitches. He’s struck out three, giving up one hit and a walk while keeping the Orioles scoreless.

7:37 PM: Manny Machado grounded out, moving Davis to third. The red-hot Caleb Joseph walked, but Everth Cabrera struck out to strand both runners.

7:31 PM: After Adam Jones goes down looking to start the inning, Chris Davis takes one the other way off the Green Monster for a one-out double, the first hit of the ballgame.

7:24 PM: Jimenez gets Betts, Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz 1-2-3, including a strikeout of Pedroia. 15 pitches for Jimenez, who looks to be controlling the ball well.

7:18 PM: Travis Snider lines out to Mookie Betts in center field, as the Orioles go 1-2-3 in the first inning. 14 pitches from Kelly.

7:16 PM: Kelly starts things off by getting Alejandro De Aza to ground out to Pablo Sandoval at third. Kelly’s stuff looks good, but De Aza with a good, eight pitch at-bat.
